Via Mainebiz , ReVision Energy partners Phil Coupe and Fortunat Mueller discuss the strengths of earning a B Corp designation:

ReVision Energy says it's seen two main benefits from being a B Corp. One is that its employees like the designation and it helps the company retain them and attract high-caliber employees. It has 165 now and expects to have 200 by year end, and has not had trouble attracting people, says Phil Coupe.

Second, Coupe says, "The more we educate our customers about B Corps, the more it helps us deepen ties to existing customers and attract new companies."
